While the New World struggles to fnd balance, and many parts of the Old World search for a new identity—the northern Rhone remains the same, and we wouldn't want it any other way. g ilbert Clusel could be thinking about how to grow, but instead he's more concerned with how to stay small amidst the growing demand for Domaine Clusel Roch. With just 3.5 hectares in Côte Rotie, Gilbert and his wife continue to farm organically, and by hand, on their steep terraced vineyards. Even the replanting of new vines is done with material from their own vineyards, assuring a future of consistent quality. The production may be small, but that's exactly how they want to keep it. Vine to Bottle, it's as simple as that. ✦ domaine Clusel Roch Cote-Rotie les Grandes Places 2012 JR 94 » $129 "...Concentrated and seamless on the palate, offering primary black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors and a smoky mineral accent that adds back-end vivacity...outstanding mineral-driven persistence."
